- Tikkun Leil Shavuot – welcome to Rabbi Leah Jordan – Thursday 28th May 7:30pm onwards
Join us for a Shavuot study session on the theme of Journeys. Rabbi Leah will lead text study, we will have creative activities and meditation led by our environmental group, and some Shavuot-themed music with our member Rebekka — and then the room will be left open for a chance for us to catch up and eat some cheesecake together.
Rebekka is looking for up to five singers – and will send out sheet music/lyrics and recordings as preparation for rehearsals. This will require at least 2 rehearsals via Zoom, and the willingness to sing solo, as Zoom does not allow for multiple sound sources simultaneously. Please contact her via email before Saturday 16th May to participate.
